CRS 204: April

Kihihi, hello there! Babette Vanderweiss here to report on my research curse. I'll try to keep my giggling to a minimum, hee hee!

I chose to do my research on ancient Roman curse tablets! As the name suggests, these tablets originated from the ancient city of Rome. Lots of them have been popping up around Bath. Roman citizens dedicated their tablets to the goddess Sulis Minerva. Ah, but why report on THAT? Hee hee, it gets a bit more interesting, you know! They're called curse tablets because they basically did just that - angry Romans wrote vengeful messages wishing all sorts of harm on their wrongdoers onto stone tablets. For example, lots of of people wished revenge upon bandits or other thieves.

Curses! A collection of 130 ancient 'curse stones' (pictured) featuring gruesome messages of revenge have been added to the Unesco heritage register

See, here's one of the tablets! They were written on things like lead or pewter or copper. Ehe, not sure why they went to all the trouble of essentially carving out "screw you" onto a stone tablet; seems like a lot of work, hm-hm!
But anyhow, once they had their little messages scrawled out - usually saying things like "I hope you go blind!" or "I hope that jerk goes crazy!" - they'd just toss them into a sacred spring or a river. They dedicated their tablets to Sulis Minerva in the hopes that she, as a righteous punisher of wrongdoing, would wreak retribution upon the unlucky victim! A bit intense form of justice, kihi!

Hee hee, and that concludes my presentation! I hope you all enjoyed!

Babette's assignment for CRS 204 was to research a curse from a certain country, and she did her research on Roman curse tablets. She had some trouble finding interesting German curses, so she turned to Rome and discovered these babies.

Top picture: CRS 203

"Hee hee! I've already got my wand from last term, so I think I'm covered!"

Babette's assignment for CRS 203 was to either demonstrate her ability to draw hex signs at will, or create an object that allowed her to do so. For one of her classes last term, her assignment was to create her own wand, so though she can't draw them by herself, she can use her wand to draw the hex signs.

"Ehh... well, ehe, my sleeves ARE pretty big... and flammable..."

Babette's assignment for CRS 202 was to perform some sort of ritual using a candle. The teacher allowed pranks, so Babette thought up the idea of hexing some poor soul so that their food would jump away from their mouth right before they could eat it. The food that jumps away would also laugh at the victim pff--
Babette's got ginormous sleeves, though, so she kind of
kept her distance from the flame
because flammable

Ophelia by kateheichou
Ophelia
My take on the scene where Ophelia drowns in Hamlet.

This is for a Hamlet project I'm doing in my English class! I chose to make a scrapbook centered around/told by Ophelia, and for sOME UNGODLY REASON I DECIDED "HEY. LET'S DRAW ALL OF THE PICTURES IN IT EVEN THOUGH IT'S DUE IN TWO DAYS." Once I've got the whole project finished, I'll probably upload it in one big post aha-

I also found a new way of coloring aND I REALLY LIKE IT??????
ALSO LONG TIME NO NON-APP ART EH
